My daughter reported an E15 error - popped down to have a look and it seemed ok and started a quick cycle but tripped the RCD after 5 mins (they did report a trip a few days ago but reset it and nothing happens since). Took front panel etc off and can see some water in the base. Everything at the front looks dry/sealed with no drips. But at the back I can see a black box that goes across the width of the machine and has some gunge/drips on the right hand side. Google isn't helping much in identifying what this is.

Anyone know what this is, how easy to replace (assuming that is the cause).

TIA.

Looks to be the collection tray feeding the main circulation pump .?

So a hose or the main body/sump? Possibly the distribution tank thingy at the side.

So further dismantling make it look like it's the join between the base and the side/rear panels (the top of the weight is also covered in the yellow fatty stuff). So as you say main body joins.

Both back and side plastic seems to be bowing out with the gap contains fatty muck.

Time for a new dishwasher - bit disappointed as I think this one is only about 7 years old.

There is a tank repair kit that consists of metal straps and seals to help when they leak like yours. As long as the tripping has stopped.
